LIVE! From Calgary, V2

 

CALGARY -- Good evening hockey fans, George Richards here to share another evening with you, the Florida Panthers, the Calgary Flames, and the Empire Carpet bobblehead.

Long day of travel, but it did bring another stop in Red Deer. If you've never been there, make plans to go. Now. It is a true garden spot. Actually, I kid. I enjoy Red Deer and their fine eating establishments. Always a good stop.

Now, on to hockey.

As I posted here earlier, Bryan McCabe was held out of practice today and will not play against the Flames because of a hip flexor. Pete DeB says he's just "erring on the side of caution" and that Bryan McC is day-to-day and could play laster on this trip. Nick Boynton also out with an oblique strain.

Lot of regulars in the lineup tonight, with Tomas Vokoun scheduled to start and go the whole 60.

More as we go. Less than an hour before the puck drops.

-- FYI: Edmonton leading Winnipeg 7-0 on CFL Friday Night Football. Go Eskimos!

-- GAME ON, and game on the radio too....check out the fellas at 970 AM in Calgary...

CALGARY SCORES AT 2:13 OF THE FIRST, CURTIS GLENCROSS KNOCKING IN A LOOSE PUCK PAST TOMAS VOKOUN...ITS FLAMES 1-0...

--Vokun getting a workout...has already faced five shots, just got runover by Dustin Boyd. Vokie did knock off Boyd's lid, though...

--It's Vokoun...

-- Alternate caps tonight: Weiss, Horton, Bouwmeester...

-- Shots: CAL 8-1

FLAMES SCORE AGAIN, RENE BOURQUE DEFLECTS A HARD SHOT FROM ANDERS ERIKKSON AT 12:19...IT'S 2-0..

PANTHERS CUT INTO IT, VILLE PELTONEN SCORING AT 13:18 TO MAKE IT 2-1...

-- Jassen Cullimore to the box with 1:13 left in the period. First PP of the night...

--We're at the first break of the night, Calgary still leading 2-1.

--Panthers on the power play, if only for a minute...nine seconds into the PP, Branislav Mezei, err, Keith Ballard heads into the box..

MIKE DUCO TIES IT UP, CHARGES IN ON KIPPER AND DRIVES IT HOME...4:34 INTO THE SECOND, IT'S 2-2...

-- The D: Bouw/Cullimore; Ballard/Jason Garrison; Henry/MacDonald

JUST LIKE THAT, FLAMES LEADS AGAIN....MIKE CAMMALLERI GOES GLOVE SIDE ON VOKUN AT 5 MINUTES...

--Nate in the box...Calgary on the PP...

--Panthers going 4-on-4, fight breaks out in front of Vokoun...

-- Now Ballard back in, Calgary on 4-on-3 PP chance...9:02 left in the second

--Good job by David Brine to get the puck out of the net...

-- Ballard out, picks up pass at center ice and drives in...nice stop by Kipper..EDIT: McElhinney is in...

--Jordan Henry wins his fight, but gets bloodied in the process...his dance partner: Craig Anderson's buddy Jamie Lundmark. He gets 4 minutes in the box, Florida on extended PP....still haven't scored a PP goal this preseason...

--Ballard almost changed that...off the post...JayBo with a nice slapshot...Weiss just misses hitting Ville in front of the net...

END OF TWO AT THE SADDLEDOME...CALGARY 3, FLORIDA 2...

-- Shots: CAL 31-17...1:16 left on penalty when we come back...

GIVE IT UP FOR BERT...TODD WALKS IN ON VOKOUN AND SINKS IT....CALGARY 5, FLA 2...4:43 INTO THE THIRD...WHO'S READY FOR MONTREAL?

-- Panthers back for the PK...Ville in at 6:34...

-- Duco figures Ville is lonely, joins him...5-on-3 for 58 seconds...6-2?

YEPPERS...DAVID MOSS RIGHT BETWEEN VOKOUN'S SKATES....CALGARY RUNNING AWAY WITH THIS ONE...IT'S 6-2....STILL 11:26 LEFT....ZZZZZZ...

-- LIVE! is shutting down unless something interesting happens. There's 5:25 left, and it's been a long week. So if you don't hear back, 6-2 is your final.

Good night all, see you in the funny papers...

CALGARY TOUCHDOWN! WAYNE PRIMEAU GOT A GIFT, AN EMPTY NET AND A LONELY PUCK...ITS 7-2 WITH 4:32 LEFT...OY....

awesome thanks for the heads up devin

sorry confused

George, wat r we doing wrong tonite????

how do we look tonite?

The Marlins didn't win. The stinky Mutts lost. They are the most undetermined team I have ever witnessed. No passion when they must win. Going thru the motions. They deserve to go home again without the playoffs. Minaya must go. I'd rather have the players the Marlins have. They may not win the division but they do know how to win.

mm. Not the best third period ever. =p
